The home Im purchasing has natural gas baseboard heat in the bedrooms with the baseboard on 3 walls. I have bedroom furniture which i need to put aganist the wall so I was thinking about tearing the gas baseboard out and replacing with a single electric baseboard heater. Just in the 2 bedrooms which are aprox 10x11. How much would this cost to have someone do this for me?...


Dear Ted:

If I understand you correctly, you want to replace the hot water baseboards which are on 3 walls in each of your two of your bedrooms with a single electric baseboard on one wall of each bedroom. Right?

To determine the cost for this change, there are a number of questions:

1) Are there other rooms in your house that will still be using natural gas hot water baseboard heating?

2) Are the two bedrooms on the same heating zone, and are these the only rooms that are part of this zone?

3) Will the single wall that you want to put the electric baseboard on be the bedroom wall that has an exterior window?

4) Are you in a region of the country where electric rates are relatively low compared to natural gas heating rates?
